House of Cards


You lean on me
And I lean on you
Like a house of cards
We stand

Without the one
The other would fall
So like a house of cards
We stand

Alone I don't have the strength
To bear this weight
And neither alone has the base
To stand up straight

But if we lean on each other
We triple our strength
And if we lean on each other
Two bases are one

I'll share my weight
And you'll share yours
And together
We'll make each other strong

So you lean on me
And I lean on you
Like a house of cards
We stand

Without the one
The other would fall
So like a house of cards
We stand

poet Li Po

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
to drink with me, its reflection
and mine in the wine cup, just
